remove programs?

  podlod 15:04 29 Dec 2007

Hi, I am trying to uninstall a game from add or remove programs area but when I click to uninstall it just flickers and does nothing? I cant re-install as when I place the disc in to re-install the game comes on? I have tried to place in safe mode on starting the pc again using F8 but safe mode refuses to work for me?How can I uninstall the game, and why can I not uninstall by the area you are supposed to? thanks for any help.

I suspect that the 'uninstall bit' is corrupt.

Try holding down the shift key when you insert the disc so that it doesn't autorun then see if you can re-install using the setup file via explorer.

Hi pine, no my removal area is ok as I have uninstalled a few items today with no prob, and held shift when replacing disc but game just came on? I placed in the disc and tried to find setup.exe but could not find, any other ideas, its driving me mad!!!

Hi, If Ccleaner;s removal tool does not work,

Click start

Click my computer

Right click C drive

Click Explore

Click on program files

Right click on the program you want to remove and click on delete,

Hi staines, tried your way but it says it just deletes it from directory not remove prog area?
I have deleted every file from all drives concerning the game and see if that works, but I will now try your way mfletch, and let you know.
